Space X podcast: why it's good to have a competitor

Published on 08 July 2024

The competition has its reasons that Elon Musk ignores. Or not. The founder of Space X has relegated his competitors so far behind him that it's doubtful whether they are still... competitors. And yet his huge company is running! Even though it's almost alone, it's still taking off. So what's the point of having a competitor? Is it really so necessary to hope to prosper?

To find out for himself, Kevin Erkeletyan called on a man with his feet firmly on the ground: Emmanuel Combe. Professor of Economics at SKEMA Business School and former Vice-Chairman of the French Competition Authority, he takes us on a journey through the many realities of this concept that we think we know but that we have never finished exploring. From Schumpeter to the airline industry and electric vehicles, the Space X rocket led by Emmanuel Combe challenges our knowledge of competition.
